27 June, 2019–31 July, 2019

For exhibition beginning: 4 November 2019

Artist Fee £2000 (inclusive of research and production costs and any licensing fees)

From 4 – 10 November 2019 the NEoN Digital Arts Festival in Dundee, Scotland will be focused on the theme “REACT”, exploring how artists use digital systems to effect change within our social and political realities. We are now seeking proposals for a commissioned project utilising AR and mobile technologies inspired by NEoN’s theme.

Many artists involved in digital arts are also part of communities of activists reacting and responding to local, national, global, social and political crises (raising awareness around issues of environmentalism, gender equality, exploitation, colonialism, militarism, emancipation, etc.). REACT will be a platform to present and critically examine the relevance of present practices, theories and strategies – to engage an uncertain future through an exploration of the creative potential of digital art.

We are particularly interested in works that function at street level utilising AR to engage protest, activism, agency and radical design in challenging and activating participants. We are specifically seeking to commission a new work using augmented reality that is participatory/interactive and freely accessible via android and IOS devices. We are interested in proposals that engage the local and/or the global (the AR project could be specific to Dundee or be utilised anywhere – as long as the project premieres in Dundee as part of NEoN REACT 2019).

The commission will be launched as part of NEoN Digital Arts Festival 2019: REACT, and NEoN will host the project for the duration of the festival.
